Part 1:
I'm getting married in the morning.
Ding! Dong! The bells are gonna chime.
Pull out the stopper, Let's have a whopper,
But get me to the church on time!
I've got to be there in the morning.
Spruced up and lookin' in my prime.
Girls, come and kiss me, Show how you'll miss me.
But get me to the church on time!
If I am dancing, roll up the floor!
If I am whistling, Whisk me out the door!
For I'm gettin' married in the morning.
Ding-ding-dong they're gonna chime.
Kick up a rumpus, don't lose the compass,
And get me to the church, Get me to the church,
For Pete's sake get me to the church, on time!
(instrumental ending)
